  2. I shoot a lot of Federal and Wal-Mart is where I get it.
  3. I bought a tent, compass, camp towel, emergency blanket, and an assortment of bandaids and some gauze yesterday. I'm working on my med kit and camping supplies at the moment.

    Alice Pack

    Dang son. 68 bucks for all that is a good deal. I tried to duplicate your pack order and with just 2 packs, 1 frame, and 1 strap set, I was at $83 on the same site.

    Dacor?????

    I haven't bought it yet. I wanted to get opinions first. Lol. The reviews I've read aren't real great. They say you can beat the snot out of them and they hold up great, but they don't hold an edge.

    I Bought A Tent...

    Lol. I'm somewhat certain that my Lab could pull me. Maybe. Lol. I saw some of those real light weight tents, but I want to make sure I'm going to get to go camping enough to justify an expensive tent first. Lol. I don't really want to go by myself and all of my friends always have something to do when I've got time to go so we'll see. At 7 pounds, this tent is a ton lighter than the tents we used in Boyscouts. lol.

    of interest to preppers with a baby.

    This is true and also I was at my local Wal-Mart last night and they had the Ozarks Trails emergency blankets on sale for $2.50 each. I grabbed an extra one for my get home bag in my car.

    I Bought A Tent...

    Lol. It doesn't seems too heavy once it's out of the box. I'm going to try to figure out how to tie it to the bottom of my pack. Were not gonna go to far in. lol. I've been thinking about making some sort of rig to strap to my lab to let him carry some stuff. Or I could tie him and my Weimaraner to a little wagon and let them pull some stuff. Lol.

    I Bought A Tent...

    Thanks. I didn't want to spend all of my gift card amount on a tent alone. I plan on getting some more stuff for my pack. The wife snuck off while I was there and bought me a Silva Polaris compass. I can't wait to use it. Now to find a reasonable stainless steel mess kit for cooking.

    Pre-Made Kits

    I know they're bad and we're not supposed to buy them, but I found this one at a flea market for $5 and wondered if it was worth grabbing for a starting point for my get home bag. It's complete and un-opened. http://www.adventuremedicalkits.com/product.php?catname=Ultralight%20/%20Watertight&prodname=Ultralight%20/%20Watertight%20.5%20&product=237

    Thinking of getting a Beretta PX4

    My only problem with them is that they're ugly. lol. I've not shot one yet, but you'll never convince me to give up my XD9. $300 is a dang good price though. You'll have to give us a review.

    Not bad. They sell the large ALICE packs with frames for just $9 more than I can buy them at Fort Barnes.

    Fixed Blade

    So I was at my local surplus store the other day and he had a new lot of knives in. I looked at this one and bought it. I know I wont use it much this year so it should hold up. It says Columbia USA Saber XF on the blade. I paid 16 bucks for it. I hope it's ok. lol.

    Fixed Blade

    I think it's a type of hydro coating or something. I'm going to see how durable it is this week.
